Why Doom Is The Only FPS I'm Looking Forward To In 2016

Newsflash: I love first-person shooters. I always have.

Okay, let me clarify: I love campaign-driven shooters. After the multiplayer explosion essentially put all single-player adventures on the back burner, I started to lose interest fast.

It's why I really haven't played many FPSs in the past few years. As good as the multiplayer is in games like Call of Duty: Black Ops III, for example, I'm really not interested in playing a ton of hours online and I love great shooter campaigns. That's why some of my favorite games include the likes of Wolfenstein: The New Order, Singularity and RAGE, and why I recall a lot of PS2 shooters like Medal of Honor: Frontline and Black with a particular fondness. Oh, and Insomniac, please bring back Resistance!

Anyway, as the single-player-driven FPS has basically died off, I sort of gave up on the genre. Then, I started to learn a bit more about the anticipated Doom reboot and I gotta say, I'm loving what I'm hearing. I'm sure multiplayer will once again be a focal point, but I have faith that id Software will deliver a great single-player experience. I know they ditched the co-op but that's okay, provided the campaign really delivers on all counts. And the atmosphere sounds perfect; they're saying that rock 'n roll and He-Man were big influences, so it kinda reminds me of a first-person Brutal Legend (almost).

At any rate, this is why the new Doom tops my most-anticipated FPS list for 2016.

We're on the same fence Ben. I usually play FPS games because of their single player campaign. And that's why Resistance and Killzone are my two favorite fps games because I like the stories of those 2 games.. ^_^

For the love of CAMPAIGN driven FPS, I'm suprised that DeusEx:MD isn't even mentioned here... Now I know this is not a pure FPS but still, if you want you can probably go guns blazing aproach.

The shooting is something they said they worked on .Trying to make it more fun and a more relevant option .

It s the only thing that was lackluster in the last one imo . If they truly worked on that , made it better and they put at least the same effort again on the rest , Deus Ex mindkind is gonna be an incredible game ( could even get goty ).

The shooting in Human Revolution was excellent. I played through that game about five times and went full assault on 3 of them and had a blast.

Deus Ex has always been more of an RPG to me.

Yeah I have some pretty good memories with Doom 1&2 (3 not so much), but currently I'm in the point in my life where I require an involving story from a campaign to keep me involved. So if I would by Doom 4 it would be for the MP. But I don't like MP so I'll pass:)

Oh my god.

Thank you Ben, for re-igniting my desire to want RAGE 2!

I loved the first one so much, it's been ages since I've played it lol
